    I've known Kas for almost 20 years and have worked with him on a variety of matters. He's also become a good friend and I've had many opportunities to observe him as a civic leader and family man in addition work as an attorney. Kas is a creative, imaginative, "can do" lawyer and I am happy to recommend him without any reservation.
